Guidelines for XRF analysis
by James Willis, Clive Feather, Ken Turner
Together, Prof. James Willis, Dr. Clive Feather and Dr. Ken Turner possess 130 years of XRF experience.
This book contains all their combined knowledge concerning method development.
Especially the commodity chapters dealing with the creation of application-dependent measurement programs for WDXRF instruments should be noted. There are recommendations for selecting element lines and the associated background positions. Application-dependent scans show possible line overlaps and influences due to selection of the analyzing crystal and collimator. All important parameters are addressed and their influences explained for each application. Wherever possible, comparisons to EDXRF are also made.
In my opinion, this book is a must for every developer of XRF methods.
